Where we left off

Almost cried editing these photos from a while back because it hit me how much I love and miss blogging and especially editing photos for you. I needed to take a huge step back because i was beginning to loose my perspective... I considered too many voices and opinions that I lost sight of why [...]

Gele Chronicles: George Me Not

Two of my favorite colours in one George material. George is a cotton African textile originating from Nigeria. It is adorned with bright colours and especially gold accents because it is usually worn by royalty. The fabric signifies wealth, luxury and status. The material is commonly worn for special occasions like weddings and church events. [...]

Earth To LAJA

I'll just be honest with myself and admit that I'm a sucker for flared skirts and off should tops (substitute turtle necks for colder weather)  This is a casual outfit that's comfy yet chic. I found myself gravitating towards it and I thought "Not again." This one is from my fashion line, LAJA. The amount [...]

Blue Swan

Hey chica! I just got back from Spring break (very much needed) and if we're friends on Instagram (@miss_laja), you'd know I was in New York! I got the chance to network with and meet lovely individuals who shed great insight on entrepreneurship, fashion and business.  It's lovely being around people passionate about making a [...]

Sighting: Chukwu “D” Designz

I met up with the brains behind Chukwu "D' Designs, Derrick Okeke. While shooting his pieces for this post, I learnt he is self-taught in the art ofankara wrapping and sewing. Talk about determination! Derrick is a Nigerian native and only started creating his designs back in 2015. I first saw his pieces during the [...]

Eternity & A Day

I have this sense of urgency about life. I always feel I can do more, do better, reach higher. At the stage (and age) I'm in, I believe so strongly it's the best time to try out new things, go out of my comfort zone, make mistakes because honestly, things only get more complicated as [...]

Gimme More Flare

Happy February, sunshine! This week has been a whirlwind for me. So many meetings and appointments to keep up with. I wake up and before I know it, the day's gone. I'm glad though because tomorrow, I'm seeing a BØRNS concert! *jumps up and down like a true fan girl* Being excited is such an [...]

BAD.

I hope you're enjoying what's left of the weekend. I finished watching "Far From The Madding Crowd", I started it on the plane but didn't get to around till the end. I AM IN LOVE. I love movies, books, TV Shows and pretty much anything where the heroine (if she's the main character) is strong [...]

This Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing day! I went for a relative's birthday party! Yes, she shares the same birthday as Jesus. It was a great time with food and lovely company. I've been visiting many family members and friends and it absolutely blows my mind that they know about Miss LAJA! Hearing the things they [...]

Blue Lagoon

I'm half asleep as I type this since I just touched down in Nigeria and my body is just confused. First thing I was greeted with was the heat and I welcomed it wholeheartedly because you know I'm not at all about that cold life. Anyways, it's good to be home and have a change of [...]
